Christmas Tree boughs & 'JOY' flag (free Silhouette cutting files & svgs)

Christmas tree bough cards - free Silhouette & SVG cutting files

Been having a tricksy time getting decent photos, but I wanted to share these cut files made
from a doodle of tree boughs with you (in case anyone still has time for last minute crafting!)

Edited to add: Oops! The vertical card is actually uploaded & linked now... :-)


For the card on the left I did this stuff: 

1) Cut the Horizontal A2 Tree bough file out of white cardstock.
2) Heat embossed Hero Arts Flower Dot Pattern stamp in white.
3) Inked using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on a foam applicator.
4) Layed it over silver gilded paper and added embroidery knots.
5) Pierced a frame around & added hand-stitches in white thread.

For the card on the right I did this stuff: 

1) Cut the Vertical A2 Tree bough file out of white cs & saved all the pieces.
2) Inked up the remnants with Crushed Olive & Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.
3) Coloured the stems of each branch with a brown grey Copic marker - W-7
4) Cut a panel to fit under the white piece; inked it with the same green inks.
5) Glued it all together with the boughs on top (glue on the center stems only.)
6) Punched little snowflakes (using a Martha Stewart Snowflake edge punch)
7) Glued them on with sequins; pierced and stitched a border in white thread.
8) Stamped a Hero Arts sentiment in white on black cardstock, on silver leaf.

And here's a paper saver (for 4 A2 cards per sheet) It's only in .studio for now, since I'm actually
not sure how to get the spacing right for SVG but if you'd like the svg, please just let me know.
